My first Portable harddrive..I've been trying to get all my data transferred to portable harddrive 80 GB(i bought it for NRs 4900). i created two partitions using 'compmgnt.msc' from the Run command in Windows XP. From that computer management, storage--> Disk management and rest was self-clear. I was trying to encrypt my data and i stumbled upon 'TrueCrypt', an opensource Encryption software. There were two options of encryption, one is selecting/naming file, creating a dump storage(volume) and mounting it with the help of 'TrueCrypt' software itself. Second option is to encrypt the entire partition/device. I selected Second Option and right now it's formatting and encrypting that drive uhh second partition. It has been running since 20 minutes and progress bar shows 30 more minutes to goo.. ughhh.. dunno, what's wrong but to me this speed of formatting is very slow. But file transfer was pretty good, 480mbps. I really liked it. I just wanted that if i plug in the drive, to access the encrypted partition it would ask me password else not. Lets see, if it works that way or not.
So many foreigners come here and buys hundreds of movies and softwares worth millions dollar for just mere few thousand bucks. This is not my saying but one of the dealer in MahaBoudha China market says. He told me that when i asked him if he could buy all the DVDs/CDs i bought from him at nominal second hand price. His advise was not bad. I returned back. Despite, there I wanted to burn my own DVD's but that's almost not possible because, it's way too many DVDs that i may end up burning all my data up. So, this portable harddrive came to rescue. lets see it doesn't deceive me when i need some of my softwares back through it.
yesterday, i watched Transformer the movie. My small cousin brothers already have the toys of Megatron, Optimus Prime etc. The movie was damn cool. i really liked all the effects and the story too. i came to know surfing for a while that it's originally comics. Just like spiderman,batman etc. I've become it's fan because of the special effects.
more on next time...
